BEA (Book Expo) Update 2

GAH.  Sorry I had gone quiet this week.  I have been so tired at night and then we get up and go so early that I just look at the blog and go… “nah.”

I have a few minutes here now though and just left the Book Blogger Convention and apparently… have some stored up bloggy type energy stored up in my fingers I was unaware of.  So let’s catch up shall we?  😀

So…. my last post left off at the Beth Hoffman Dinner Tuesday night…

  1. First ever subway ride.  I am now an honorary New Yorker.

  2. Dinner was so awesome.  We went to dinner at Mercers Kitchen in Soho.  So wonderful.  There were 8 of us bloggers I think, I will list them all and their blogs next week when I write more detailed posts about the events.  Beth Hoffman…. as real in person as she is in her books and on the social networks.

  3. Back in hotel room 1t 11:30 pm.  SO TIRED!

  4. Wednesday…. up at 5 am.  To Javitz by 6:15 am… picked up Rick Riordin tickets for a signed event.

  5. At Javitz until about 3 pm.  Reagan and I are SHOT.  So tired books have lost all meaning (and that is TIRED!)

  6. We go back to our hotel room and crash for about an hour. 

  7. Up and get ready for the Harper Collins Blogger Reception

  8. Reception is a blast… we taxi over, get a chance to connect with many authors and fellow bloggers.  I meet two of the authors I am doing book tours with this fall!  (More on this in post next week)

  9. Go to dinner with a group of bloggers organized by Heather from Age 30+ a Lifetime of Books to a place called Bice.  I had a fettuccine with shrimp…. YUM!

  10. back in hotel by 11:00 pm…. shot again.  😀

  11. Thursday – sleep in a bit day!!!  Up at 7:30 am…. YEAH!!!  Get ready and to Javitz by 8:45 am after stopping at Dunkin Donuts for COFFEE and breakfast. 

  12. Spend morning at Javitz center chatting up with publishing companies and getting a few books along the way. 

  13. 10:15 am meet outside to taxi to the Adrianna Trigiani event with other bloggers (detailed post on this next week).  Taxi to Greenwich Village where we go on the wonderful Adriana Tour of the Village!

  14. Meet up with Adriana at The Standard Grill for lunch.  

  15. Back to Javitz at 3:45 pm.

  16. Back to hotel and get ready for Atria party at Simon and Schuster

  17. Taxi to Atria and meet up with publishers and authors and more bloggers.  (More details on this next week)

  18. Reagan and I go to Empire State Building  – all the way up!  😀

  19. Back in room by 10 pm.  Chill a bit then sleep.

  20. Up at 6:00 to prep for Book Blogger Convention

  21. At convention by 7:05 pm for breakfast

  22. Convention officially starts at 9 a.m. to 4:30 pm.  (details details – next week :D)

Now – currently I am sitting at my hotel room with Reagan (Miss Remmers Reviews) and Cass (Bonjour, Cass! A Book Lovers Blog) preparing to go to a Broadway play… Mary Poppins! 


I will break down these events soon in more detail, I just wanted to touch base and let you know I do still exist and I am returning home very early tomorrow morning… 😀
